Large church in small village - HFF

I like these country churches, surrounded by their old cemeteries. The neo-Gothic church of Saint-Medard underwent alterations in the 19th century when the bell tower was integrated directly into the façade.

GRANDE EGLISE DANS PETIT VILLAGE. J'aime bien ces églises de campagne, entourées de leur vieux cimetières. L'église Saint Médard de style néogothique a connu de remaniements au XIXe siècle lorsque le clocher a été directement intégré à la façade.

GROSSE KIRCHE IN KLEINEM DORF. Ich mag diese Landkirchen, die von ihren alten Friedhöfen umgeben sind. Die Kirche Saint Médard im neugotischen Stil wurde im 19. Jh. umgebaut, als der Glockenturm direkt in die Fassade integriert wurde.

Old churches are interesting yes,. and although a little morbid, I find that looking around at grave stones can reveal some fascinating history of families..
Btw. I photographed a memorial in our local cemetery (Derbyshire) of a girl who in 1856 emigrated to 'Burlington Iowa' USA... a fellow photographer in Burlington picked up on my picture and actually went out and found her grave .. I am still in contact with the photographer today,.
A very nice picture Christa'..and a ''HFF'' to you from Dj.

Ja, so kenne ich das auch von manchen südfranzösischen orten. Ein winzig kleiner ort, dafür eine riesige kirche. Und da hab ich mich gefragt, wo denn die vielen leute herkommen, die in diese kirche reinpassen würden ;-)

Like here in the UK -sometimes the smaller the village the bigger the church! Well done.

Lovely mellow stonework and colours in this shot Christa. A pretty church with a short but quite steep flight of steps, - no wonder the handrail is needed! It may have had rich sponsors but it was doubtless built at t time when the chuch was the centre of village life so was very important.

HFF and have a good weekend
